These Pumpkin Spice cake pops are the perfect way to gear up for Halloween and the fall season!

I thought after returning from the Duncan Hines trip things would start to slow down but I was dead wrong! I’ve been so busy however I’ve finally managed to squeeze in the time to bake something! Included in our DH gift box that was mailed home to everyone who attended the Sweet Stars weekend was a Pumpkin Spice cupcake kit. I actually saw these on the shelf at Walmart the day before l left to DH so when I arrived I mentioned it to one of the DH team members who was quite surprised that I had already seen them. I guess my rural Walmart was one of the first to have these out, major shocker! I had the pleasure of trying these in cupcake form during our time at the test kitchen and they were AMAZING! I was glad to see them in our gift box 🙂

ps

My idea came from the obvious, pumpkin flavor and the fall season that is upon us!

To make these pops you will need:

– DH Pumpkin spice cupcake kit
– Orange melting candy
– Sticks, I used popsicle sticks for a more rustic feel
– Foam Block for drying
– Any green candy for a stem
– I used twine to embellish the sticks but it’s not necessary.

Bake your cake & allow to cool
Once the cake has cooled crumble it into a large mixing bowl
In this case you will need to follow the box instructions to create the pumpkin spice frosting
Add small amounts of frosting to the crumbled cake until it forms a dough like texture
Using a scoop or spoon remove some of the cake mixture and roll into balls

To achieve the look of a pumpkin you will need to use a pen or cake pop stick to indent lines all around the pop

chill in the freezer for 5-10 minutes
While the pops are chilling melt your orange candy
Remove pops from the freezer
Dip the tip of your stick into the melting candy, insert about halfway into the pumpkin pop, allow to dry
Once the sticks have dried submerge you’re entire pop into the melted candy, tap off the excessive
Apply green candy stem
Place on a foam block for drying
Once the pumpkin pops have completely dried I added a coat of gold pearl dust to give them a nice shimmer

These were some of the easiest cake pops I have ever made yet they look like they took a lot of time and effort! Enjoy!

Easter basket cake pops

6 Apr

Basket

A few days ago I got an order for Easter cake pops and the customer didn’t have
a design preference she just wanted something to reflect Easter so I decided to
go with miniature Easter baskets.

For your pops you will need these
items
1. A cake mix ( Any flavor you want to use)
2. Frosting
3.
Melting candy or Chocolate Bark
4. Cake pop sticks

For decorating you will need these items
1. Shredded coconut
2. Green food
coloring
3. Twine for the handle
4. Jelly Beans

Making your
pop-
1. First prepare your mix and bake it, for this order I’m using the
flavor red velvet.
2. After your cake has cooled, in a large mixing bowl
begin to crumble it.
3. Once your cake is crumbled begin to stir in small
amounts of frosting until you reach a sticky consistency. You want to add just
enough frosting to get your mix to stick together. For a whole cake you should
use about half a can.
4. Using a scoop or spoon take out some of the mixture
and start to form a ball. To get a nice basket shape flatten one side of the
ball, this is where the grass and jelly beans will sit.
5. When you have all
of your balls shaped put them in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
6. Once
your balls are out of the freezer take a stick dip it in your melting candy and
insert it into the ball.
7. After your sticks have dried you can now dip the
entire pop in your melting candy. After your pop has been submerged into the
melted candy tap off any access and place on a Styrofoam block to dry.
8.
Once your pops are completely dry you can move on to the fun part, decorating!

Decorating your pop-
1. Place your shredded coconut in a zip lock
bag with a few drops of green food coloring, shake the bag until your coconut is
coated green like grass.
2. Attach your grass to the flat side of your basket
using melted candy as “glue” and let it dry
3. Use more of the melted
chocolate “glue” to attach jelly beans of your choice
4. After your pop is
dry you can focus on the handle. I chose to use twine because I like the way it
looks. If you want to use something edible you can roll a tootsie roll into a
handle shape or use a twizzler. To use the twine method measure out enough to
reach from one side of your pop to the other then apply melted candy to one side
and place the end of your twine on top of it then add a small amount of the
melted candy on top of the twine, hold it in place to dry. Do the same to the
other side. Once both sides are dry you will end up with an adorable Easter
basket cake pop!
